Vaudeville musical prop-based comedy dickheads, the Raymond and Mr Timpkins Review have been winning standing ovations all over Britain for decades.  We talk about their origins filling in during the scoring on battle of the bands nights, why they consider themselves hobbyists despite being full-time professionals, and find out how and why they're gearing up for their first ever Edinburgh Fringe run...

Splicing together physical absurdity with beautifully cerebral joke-writing, John Luke Roberts is responsible for some genuinely ground-breaking comedy. We discuss how he was vice-president of Cambridge Footlights while not feeling part of it, how he battles his ego and why he was drawn to Ecole Phillipe Gaulier.  We also explore what it feels like to perform as a terrifying clown of your own dead father...
 
Extras available by joining the Insiders Club at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders include the inside story on ACMS and his "mutually-assured" relationship with co-host Thom Tuck, and his thoughts on why even though the highs of improv and musical comedy are high indeed, the entry level is pretty low...

251 - Robin Ince

Comedian, broadcaster, science-afficionado and author of forthcoming psychological memoir "I'm A Joke And So Are You", Robin Ince's ideas flow through him like neutrinos.  We discuss his constant state of "hypervigilant" anxiety, improvisation and tangents, success and frustration.  Once or twice he even pauses for breath...

A fitting guest for the Sestercentennial of the show, Simon "The Patrician" Evans was once Guest Zero - without him the podcast might not exist at all.  A touring and club powerhouse, and Radio 4 regular, his every line and inflection is a polished diamond.  We explore the grind necessary to achieve those results, discover the devilment beneath his political dalliances, and learn which TV comic pushed him to "adapt or die"...

Anuvab Pal is one of a new generation, exploding out of India's relatively recent "comedy Big Bang".  This disarming, witty act reveals how hard he finds it to embrace the Western "free thought" approach to learning, and waxes lyrical on the difference between art and "retail entertainment", as well as giving us the low-down on who to watch out for in Indian comedy...

Sophie is a hurricane of comedy in action. Possessed of a singular voice, she focuses her wit on genuinely important subject matter, including the cuts to social and mental health care services.  We talk about obtaining government funding for her comedy tours, the "politics of politeness", and what happens after the conversation about class in comedy...

247 - Ben Target

Considering oneself "an artist who works in the field of comedy" is the starting point for a fascinating re-framing of the whole goddamn thing, in this conversation with the wonderfully funny, curious, and extraordinarily inventive Ben Target. We discover a shared inspiration in an Argentinian circus, explore Ben's holistic approach to theatre-in-the-round, and find out why minor authority figures are inherently funny...

Recorded in 2017, this episode refers to Anne's previous Barry nomination and not her most recent one, which might hint at the kind of quality of comic we've got here...  We talk about her ability to inhabit incredibly funny and idiosyncratic Australian characters, her eye for detail, and then completely miss out on her excellent ABC "noir"-ish sitcom "The Edge Of The Bush".

One of the most recognisable faces of the "Blue Collar Comedy Tour", Ron "Tater Salad" White is adored by fans of his caustic wit and everyday calls-it-like-he-sees-it Texan charm.  We talk about his discovery of the part of his brain that went on to make him his fortune, about what it means to murder a crowd, and what it's like to be a joke when he's working on you...
